In the prime of life ami will on the roail to l;cqiuL.it a citizen of excep

Mr. Hughes was a young man of unusual force of character, and
was to be found at all times allied with movements tending to the bet
terment of moral, social and general conditions on this island. He en
joyed the confidence of -everybody, and possessing a delightful personality
and disposition was uniycrsd'$ l&od and respected; Men of 'maturcr
years had predicted a spleiulid" future fJr him, niyUyiew wifh; the' deep
est and most sorrowfulWgret his untimely death; while the younger ele
ment of our community have lost one of their leaders and best friends.
The lii'art of Kauai goes out in tenderest sympathy to Mrs. Hughes
and the twiv beautiful, bright children in their great bereavement.
Provide Our Own Ships
Advices indicate that they arc having even ahardcr experience on
the east coast of South America on account of the scarcity of merchant
vessels thanjwe. in Hawaii and this ocean. It is related, for instance,
that coffee is selling in Brazil at 81 the.ifag,, but, it, costs $2 a bag to get
it to New York. Scores of German ships arc interned in the ports of Uio
de Janeiro, Buenos Aires and other havens, where they must remain until
the war is over. Meanwhile, the only vessels in commission awl available
for carrj-ng freight arc a few British lxats, the charters upon which arc
enormous. Therefore, the need of a protected American merchant marine
was never more apparent than at jio, present time. The rub will come
to us in these Islands when the present contract for hauling sugar to the
eastern refiners expires. All of the signs of the times' point to the con
clusion that there will Ik; extreme dilliculty in negotiating any;. contract
at all, and if a workable arrangement is successfully made the freight
tariff rate wil he so high as to greatly reduce the profit to be expected
from sugar. . "
It seems to us that the great plantations of Hawaii, should make
themselves independent of such conditions by providing their own ship
ping facilities. They now have an aggregate of many millions of surplus
enough to purchase or build steamers to handle the entire business of
these Islands for many years. It would not be an expenditure it would
be an investment, just as are plantation railroads and sugar mills, the
difference being in favor of the steamers, for they would show realizations
on return cargoes. The same end might be reached by a combination
with the Matson company which would bring alniut a very great enlarge
ment of their fleet, and a control of the same in Hawaii.
Conditions are becoming worse every day. Few ships are building
compared to the number being destroyed in war, and in less than two
years there will be a shipping crisis such as the world has never before
known. The time to prepare for the certain scarcity of. ships stud' the
enormous cost of moving cargoes is right now when the Islands arc able
to do it and the opportunity is still ours.

For Fry ing-For Shortening

There is no smoke nor;odor. .Pried foods are free from
the taste pf grease. fThey ncnv:ar,j tasty and crisp. They
are made more digestible, for Crisco is all vegetable..
The same Crisco can be used to fry fish, onions, dough
nuts; etc.; merely by stranting! out 'the food particles
after each frying-; 11 ' " '
Crisco gives pastrv a nbw flakincss and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and consistency.
It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.
You Should Wear Kryptoks
BECAUSE they give you the two vi-
sionsjyou require in one pair of glasses.
BECAUSE they are to all practical
purposes single, solid lenses.
BECAUSE they possess no lines of de
mnication and nosegments; hence do not
drop apart nor collect dirt in the creases.
BECAUSE thev are as graceful on the
face as any pair of single vision eye
glasses. BECAUSE they are no more liable to
breakage than the ordinary single focus

Crisco gives richness at smaller cost, It brings cake
making back to popular'ty. Butter bills arc reduced and
cakes stay fresh and moist longer.
In the mkanwiiilk we would like to know what 'wen; the results of
that battle between the Turks and Russians near Bagdad. Three; oi fwur
months ago a large Russian army, after clearing the way froiii Ti'cpizdnd
across the ulains almost to the valley of the Euphrates, faced the Turks
for he final struggle which would or would not close the back'' door of
the Ottoman empire. The battle was in progress. Men were "falling
like stalks of grain before the reaper. It looked as.though the Bussians
would win and the ancient route of tr;ivel and commerce to the Persian
Gulf and India be completely in their hands. But just then" there' was
a new drive on the west front, or Rumania entered tjie. waiv 'or 'Vonifc'
thing of that sort, and we lost track of the.-Bagdad campaign"' eiitfreiy":
